got via trade from hopsrus. awesome - truely an Imperial Pale Ale without being an India Pale Ale. Lot’s of malt, balanced with a healthy (not excessive) amount of hops, backed up with a bit of alchohol. little on the dry side. nice finish. An excellent ale.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 One of my favorite Pale Ales (it’s up there with Lost Coast Indica as my number 2 & 3 beers). Floral hoppy aroma, along with some caramel. Flavor is sharp and crisp - hoppy with some floral flavors as well as a predominent citrus grapefuit. Finishes with a nice lingering hop bite.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Blind rating, bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Way overdone and one-dimensional.

If you love hops, you’ll definitely like this one. Like Victory’s HopDevil and Blue Ridge’s HopFest, Alpha King is an over the top extremely well hopped ale. Highly recommended.

Very hoppy ale. If you’re not a hophead, don’t venture here. Otherwise, smooth and decent.

What a nice suprise! Great aroma, I didn’t want it to end. Nice hop and great malt. By letting it warm up, the malt really comes out strong. Glad I made the trade for this!

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 Excellent malt is simply a magic carpet ride for the greatest hop presence in an 'every day' beer! This is my session ale, widely available near me, a near perfect brew that I enjoy all year round. The original growlers from the Hammond brewery were out of this world with hops and malt. Just recently I have come across hand-pulled A.K.'s and love it equally. I'd love to watch a group of British Cask drinkers get their hands on this, it would turn them inside out. Massive flavor. If I could drink only one beer, Alpha King would be the one.

DavidP (1746) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2002
UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 Clear dark golden color with a short-lived fizzy white head. Slightly bready, citrusy aroma. Unassuming malt but with a sub-IPA hoppiness. A slight sticky-sweet aftertaste hurts the finish on this beer.

Excellent. Big flavor with nice head. One of my new favorites.
